Haunted Stuff This book was a lot of awesome fun to read.  It begins giving you information about haunted items, hauntings, ghosts, and tips on investigating the paranormal.  All very helpful and well written.  It then goes on to give lots and lots of histories on specific haunted items, which was very enjoyable, especially the part about a certain doll that I just watched a movie on.   This would be a great book for people who write horror and ghost stories, a place to get ideas or just to read about some interesting hauntings.  It also would be great for people who are either interested in purchasing a haunted item (even tells you where you can find them and how to go about doing it) or have found themselves with a haunted item or living in a haunted home.  The investigation tips were cool and all easily done, as well as inexpensive.   Note: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review.  No other consideration was offered, expected or received.

Haunted Stuff was a ‘blah’ read. It covers a lot of ground, but doesn’t mention the accounts in detail, and a lot of things mentioned in the book have been mentioned elsewhere, over a bazillion times. It lacks originality, and the cases aren’t interesting either. There’s no new perspective. Everything is just rehashed from material that can be found elsewhere. The author didn’t do investigations on site, and she has no experiences with haunted stuff herself, or if she does, she doesnt elaborate them here. The stories were familiar for the most part. Some were new, but those didn’t even make up a quarter of the book. It’s nothing more than a mish-mash of urban legends that have been recycled a dozen times, or the more famous hauntings everyone knows about. I was hoping for original cases the author investigated herself, or cases that didn’t make it to the headlines at least a dozen times before. Ultimately, a dissapointment. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Just read the book, and loved the stories. I have always loved a good ghost story-but if you really think about the idea of a "haunted" doll-it really makes you think.
